Depends how well Derren straps Annette to the seat on the roof of the car ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Hope it is the car and not the caravan as Annette will have to remember to duck for low bridges ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Weather rain all night but not too bad now. Had a dry spell this morning and scope mostly set up for tonight if any luck with the weather.

Shower and ablutions block look great.

Clear all night so turned in at 5am .

The nights viewing didn't start well.

Had a battle with the new van cargo area lights, 3 hours they didn't go off so after a fruitless hunt for the fuse ended up pulling all 4 of them out and disconnecting. Lost 2 hours viewing. ๐Ÿ˜ชย 

Plugged in my power tank for the dewheaters and nothing ๐Ÿคฌ.

First I thought I must've left the meters on and drained it at home. After a lot of faffing aboutย  I found it was the two way rocker switch (charge/dew output) that had failed. Managed a quick soldering job and the visual observing could commence. Lost another hour ๐Ÿ˜ชย 

Others were not as lucky and didn't do any imaging due to being unable to connect to their mounts.ย 

Report maybe later ๐Ÿค”ย
